You should call the dentist. I wish you luck, I remember how painful it was for me to have all 4 of mine cut out. Good luck and God Bless:) Although it is rare to bleed three days after the extraction, do not panic. Call your dentist. He or she will look at the state of the blood cloth.

You're thinking of a nose bleed. If you are bleeding a bit the dentist should have given you gauze to put pressure on the gum to stop the bleeding. Leave your head up and if you have to lay down prop your head up with a couple of pillows so the blood doesn't run into your stomach. Also rinse your mouth with warm salt water 2 - 4 times a day.

After the wisdom teeth are extracted how long should you bite down on the gauze?

Bite down on the gauze, changing it every 15-30 minutes, and when the gauze has just a pinkish tint to it (instead of the dark red blood you had been seeing), then the bleeding has slowed down enough to remove it. Just do not bend over, use a straw, or smoke a cigarette or the bleeding will flare back up. If you should happen to begin to bleed again, simply put some gauze back in your mouth. Try to relax until you have reached the point where the gauze can be removed. Hope this has helped! The bleeding should stop about 20 minutes after the surgery. Although is some cases, especially after complicated extractions, the gums can start bleeding again, and you can also wake up the next morning with some blood in your mouth. It is always handy to have extra coton gauzes with you. If you have none left, you can go to rite aid or daune reade to pick up cotton
